125 Place Vaucanson - Bussières

In the heart of a country of silk where high-end weaving is still alive, travel back in time alongside fellow weavers in a former silk factory active from 1920 to 1970. During the visit, looms from 1800 to the present day are working under your eyes and reveal for you all the secrets of making exceptional fabrics.

A shop of local products awaits you at the end of the visit, made by textile companies in the region or by the seamstress volunteers of the museum.
